Description: Ticciati offers an interpretation of the Book of Job taking the opening verses about Job being perfect and upright as its hermeneutical key. Her principal agenda is a critical exploration and reappraisal of the concept of integrity, interpreted most fundamentally in terms of a relationship to God for naught—as in Satan's taunt about him. Thus she shifts the emphasis of interpreting the Book from the problem of evil or unjust suffering to the problem of obedience, sanctification, or transformation of self before God.
